7:00 am
(chuckles) yeah, right. well, thanks. (barking) oh. (laughing) that is so cool! hey, watch this. deep from the heart of darkness, comes something truly terrifying. hogie, the giant hamster! (laughs) (growling) (george growling) oh, no! my two-sided marker! (grunts) i can't see it. i know-- let's get hogie to find it! huh? oh, yeah. okay, hogie, find the marker, boy!
7:01 am
steve: hey! i've been looking for that! (grunts) george couldn't believe all the stuff under aunt margaret's couch. ah. stairs? huh?! (screams) (hogie squeaking) what's the matter, george? (chattering) steve: hey, that looks like the alley outside. outside?! outside?! oh, no! hogie's escaped, and he's got professor wiseman's camera! steve: bicycle, bicycle, bicycle, bicycle... phew! phew! (groans) how am i gonna find a little bitty hamster out there? hmm. (gasps, chatters) good thinking.
7:02 am
we can look at the computer, and figure out where hogie is. (george chattering) steve: yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! looks like he's near the dinosaur bush. see? it's right here on the map. george: ah... okay, we have to split up. someone has to watch the computer so we know where hogie goes. we can use my walkie-talkies to communicate. (chatters) i'll tell you what landmarks i see here, and you can find them on the map and grab hogie. (chatters) so, the dino bush is here. (chatters) to get to the dino bush the first thing george had to do was turn left down the alley. but instead of finding a street... huh? ...george found a park. he had done something wrong. he started at aunt margaret's here. the park was at the top of the alley.
7:03 am
george wanted to be at the street at the bottom of the alley. huh. he'd turned right instead of left. if you're hurrying on a hamster hunt... you need a quick way to tell right from left. hmm. and then george realized, the walkie-talkie ear was left, and the non-walkie-talkie ear was right. ah... uh-huh. ah. he was at the intersection below aunt margaret's. the dino bush was on the next corner on his left. (chatters) walkie-talkie ear, left. (chatters) if he had turned the way he was supposed to turn, the dino bush would be up ahead. (chattering) huh? ha-ha! and it was. (bell dings)
7:04 am
but... hogie wasn't. (chatters "hogie? hogie?") (sighs sadly) steve (over radio): george? george! hogie's on the move again! do you see him? uh-uh. okay. he's standing beside some really big feet. i think it's a statue. (groans) uh-oh. george was in trouble. there were two statues. which one was hogie beside? one statue is in the park. that was a long walk for a little hamster. uh-uh. but the other statue was between the park and the dino bush. and there it was! maybe hogie was beside that one. ooh... (bird chirping)
7:05 am
steve: george, you're not gonna believe this, but hogie can ride a bike! he's riding toward a bunch of trees! (chatters) where were trees on the map? (chattering) the park was in front of george. he needed to go straight. (george gasps) wait. he turned right. steve (gasps): he's passing the bookstore. right was away from the walkie-talkie ear. okay. he's turning right again... and biking past red rock. (chatters) red rock was one block in front of george, just to the right of the corner. so george ran straight,
7:06 am
then made a non-walkie-talkie turn right, and wound up exactly where he was supposed to be. (chatters) and there was a bicycle. but it wasn't a hogie-sized bike. (chatters) uh... i don't know where he is. (squeaks) i can't see anything. aunt margaret's house was down the next street. maybe hogie had just gone home. (jackhammer pounding) i'm getting a signal again. oh! hogie is really high up. he's next to something really big and really orange.
7:07 am
(george sighs) (yells) huh? narrator: george was here, and hogie was at the construction site. the quickest way was straight up. (panting) (george gasping) aha! (squeaking) (cooing) (panicked squeaking) (gasps) hogie can fly! huh? (george gasps) (panicked hooting) oh.
7:08 am
aha! phew! narrator: george had hogie. hey! but hogie didn't have the camera. so who did? (cooing) (cooing) (panicked chatter) (yells) (cooing) oh... (sighs) i lost the world's most incredible hamster! he can ride a bike and fly! narrator: george could chase the camera later. first, he wanted to get hogie home. and he could get there without a map. (cooing) george, hogie landed in the park! (dog panting) (barking) (cooing) (sniffing) now he's walking. and he's got a really big tongue. george, do you copy?
7:09 am
george?! george: uh-huh! hogie! i missed you, buddy! uh, w-wait. if you're here, who's there? hey, that's our door! uh, coming, camera! (barking and panting) charkie?! (panting) how did you get this? (knocking) (charkie barking) hello, steve. oh, hey, professor. i still have your camera for you. (laughs) thanks. oh, my! well, i've got to run. wait, professor! you have to see this! my hamster can fly! come on, hogie. show the professor. fly, buddy! fly! (chatters) steve: uh, we know you can fly. i don't get it. kid: george used a map to find hogie. we are using a map to find clues about a party. girl: i made a map for my friends to follow.
7:10 am
these stars are where i put clues to help them figure out what my party is about. oh, think i see the star! you will have fun getting out of the sun. that could mean it's, like, indoors. the next thing we should be looking for is fire hydrant. oh, yes! here it is! spring is in the air. spring is in the air. well, that's true, it is. girl: the last clue was in the purple fence. you are in for a dirty job. oh, spring cleaning! spring cleaning! oh! girl: this marks the end. i see a little tree house. boy: we think this party is about cleaning out your tree house. it is. spring cleaning. (indistinct chatter)
7:11 am
narrator: it's hard for a monkey to nap when he's looking forward to the next basil gnoeital mystery. (chatters) and george was. time to get up. (yells) whoa! hey, did you nap at all? uh-uh. well, you think you'll be able to stay awake for the big basil gnoeital movie tonight? uh-huh. narrator: basil was george's favorite detective. oh, hey. (chattering happily) narrator: and tonight, pisghetti's was showing a gnoeital movie as part of his monday munch & mystery night. hey, what movie is on the menu tonight? the basket of the houndervilles. uh-huh! houndervilles? oh, that sounds like our kind of movie, doesn't it, hundley? (hundley barks) narrator: hundley was partial to dr. onhistoes,
7:12 am
basil's extremely neat assistant. (cat yowling, loud thud) (all gasp) oh. scusi. (chatters curiously) huh. say george, do you think you'll be able to solve the case in the movie before basil does? oh. uh-huh. narrator: george hoped so. he wanted to be a great detective and solve a mystery, too! chef pisghetti: psst. psst. my cookbook-- she is missing! (gasps) oh! where's the last place you saw it? here! you see, i go to hand out the menus, i hear a noise, i come back and poof! like that, the cookbook-- she has vanished! oh, and without it... you're... ruined? nah, but dessert sure is. i don't know how to make the topping
7:13 am
for my blueberry surprise without it. it has to be around here somewhere. (sniffing) (chattering) well, the cookbook doesn't seem to be anywhere here. (gasps) narrator: george realized... (barks) ...he had his very own mystery-- the case of the missing cookbook. oh. the first thing to do was look for clues. ah. huh. narrator: george wished
7:14 am
he had his official basil gnoeitall magnifying glass. (sighs) (patrons chattering in dining room) (sighs) oh, what do i do? keep looking. i'll start the movie. maybe you'll find your cookbook before it's over. narrator: the mystery of the missing cookbook really had george stumped. ah! maybe the detective movie would help him learn how to solve his case! (barks) (film projector whirring) (dramatic music plays) detective gnoeitall, i'm goody tushews. i've called you
7:15 am
because my most precious book has gone missing. huh? oh. narrator: george was in luck. the movie was about a missing book, too. (yawning) but he was wishing he'd taken his nap. missing, eh? ♪ (cat shrieks) oh! tippy, come back! (glass cracks) oh, dreadfully sorry. no matter. this vase of water will do. see? the rounded sides combined with the water make things big, just like my magnifying glass. marvelous! aha! narrator: maybe george could use a vase to inspect his own crime scene. that dr. onhistoes! no spill got past him!
7:16 am
(barks) what do you see, detective? detective? man: detective? we're here. aha. (horse neighs) you've got your work cut out for you this time, detective needstoknow. detective george needstoknow wasn't worried. (barks) ha-ha. with his trusty assistant dr. hundley dachshund by his side, he was certain to solve the case. it's a-detective needstoknow. he's a-come to solve-a the mystery, mate. (chuckles) ha-ha-ha. tell him what happened, chef. well, i was making my shepherd's pie. i go to seat my guest.
7:17 am
i hear a noise. i come back and poof! like that, my recipe-- she's disappeared. gnocchi, no walking in-a the food. dr. dachshund didn't like a messy crime scene. (growls) (chatters) but messes might contain clues. (sniffs) ah. it smelled like flour and gravy. huh. oh, no. detective needstoknow had left his magnifying glass at home. aha. luckily he found something that just might work. (chuckling) (growls, sniffs) luckily there was plenty of water nearby.
7:18 am
he just had to squeeze a bit to make it round like the vase. ooh... ah. (giggles) now detective needstoknow could look for clues. huh. aha. (gasps) george: oh, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh. (slurps) ah! (chatters) (clock chiming onscreen) (exclaims) (yawns, mumbles) (movie soundtrack playing) this is your man. i say, how do you do it, sir? easy-peasy, dr. onhistoes. i just examine the clues. (applause)
7:19 am
(barks) i guess you should have taken that nap, huh, george? (chattering agreement) hey! george might have missed the movie, but he did get an idea that might help solve his mystery. hmm. oh, that's right, the cookbook. did you find it? ah, we looked everywhere. if george's dream was right, he had an idea how to find the cookbook. he just needed to examine the clues. um, george, i'm not sure if this is the best time to make water balloons. (hooting) (sighs) if there's one thing a detective can't stand, it's a magnifying glass that leaks. and there weren't any vases. (gasps)
7:20 am
aha! (grunts) ooh. hmm. the rolling pin had rounded sides and was clear. maybe it would magnify things, too. (chattering) he had a magnifying glass that wouldn't break or spill. what are you...? are you making a magnifying glass like basil? (hooting) uh-huh, uh-huh. oh. hey, look at these prints. those might be gnocchi's. (george hooting) (chattering) (meows) oh, look at that. gnocchi's tongue is blue. she must have eaten the blueberries. uh-huh. ah, aha. yeah, look at that.
7:21 am
there's blueberries spilled all over the countertop. huh. (meows) aha. george had it. (chuckles) (all gasp) (chuckles nervously) he never does this at home. ha! my recipe book! (laughs) gnocchi, you must have knocked it into my blueberry surprise when you were sneaking blueberries, huh? thank you, detective georgio. you are the greatest detective ever. ha-ha. ah! (chuckles) (george moans, lips smack) hmm. (laughs) boy: george solved the mystery by looking closely at gnocchi's paw prints. we are trying to solve our own mystery.

7:33 am
anyone for a snowy snooze? a tardigrade slows down, you see? so his body won't waste energy. he curls into a tight ball called a tun, and stays that way until he's warmed by the sun. m-m-maybe that'll work for us. (shivering) i'd rather sleep in a warm bed. me too! you win, wally. wally? uh-oh, we can't wake him up! some nice warm sunlight should do the trick. make way for the rise-and-shiner! nick: cool! time to go already? i was just getting comfy. you win this one, wally. but are you tough enough for the gritchity gratch desert? that's the hottest place ever. the hotter, the better!

>> yeah. she kind of looks like you, but erma's really, really big. >> really, really big? well, that's not what i heard 'cause i'm erma eoraptor, don't you know? i was just having some fun with ya. [all laugh] >> well, it's great to meet you, erma. >> well, it's nice to meet you, too. i'm guessing that you do not live anywhere around these parts. >> we don't. we're from the cretaceous time period, a long way from here. >> the cretaceous time period? oh, now that is a mouthful of fancy words. i reckon i've never been there, but i ain't been far from here ever, and i ain't seen many other dinosaurs. 'course, i've seen members of my own family. that's just about it. >> well, that makes sense. you are, like, the first dinosaur after all. >> ha ha ha! me? the first? oh, i'm definitely not the first dinosaur. i have a mama and a papa, and they had a mama and a papa, too, don't you know? i think what you mean, tiny, is that eoraptor may be the first
8:35 am
kind of dinosaur. >> right, the first species. >> yes, siree. so, do you cretaceous critters want the grand tour? so this is the ravine and some of our trees, and these are ferns. >> do you eat ferns, erma? >> ferns? no. i'm a meat-eating gal. >> meat? just like me? but i observe that you have 5 fingers. >> yep, 5. but two of them are kind of small. don't help much. >> and you have 3-toed feet, like me. >> what do you know? and looky here--i got a mouthful of choppers just like you, buddy. >> i have a beak. >> and it's quite a pretty one, tiny. >> [squawks] thanks. >> i didn't ask you and your ma. what do you like to eat? >> fish! >> so, you're fish-eaters, eh? i never met a fish-eater that i know of. i don't have a taste for fish. tell you the truth, i don't even know what a fish looks like. >> oh, fish is the best! we go to the big pond near where we live and fish all day long. >> big pond, eh, don't you know? >> you'd love it, erma. there
8:36 am
are so many species of dinosaurs there. >> yeah. big, long-necked quadrupeds and hooting hadrosaurs. >> and there are sea birds and turtles and icthyosaurs and plesiosaurs. >> whoa, nellie! slow down, partners. i'm getting overheated. >> mom, tiny, i think erma should come and see all of them on the dinosaur train. >> the dinosaur what? a train? >> the dinosaur train travels all around the world. >> through all different time periods, and we ride it. >> you ride it? >> yeah! you can visit all kinds of places and dinosaurs and other creatures. we do it all the time. >> mercy! what a notion. sounds mighty interesting. oh, sure. why not? let's do it. >> really? you mean you want to ride the train with us right now, erma? >> that's exactly what i mean-- today. if i don't do it now, i may never do it, right? >> right! >> well, what are we waiting for? let's go catch the train. to the handcart! >> are we there yet? >> not yet.
8:37 am
>> are we there yet? >> not yet. >> are we there yet? [buddy and tiny laugh] well, land sakes alive! why, i've never seen something so big. >> it's the dinosaur train! >> well, hello, pteranodon family. oh! and you must be erma eoraptor. i'm the, uh, conductor. i, uh--ahem!-- basically run the train. at your service, ma'am. >> aw, shucks! >> welcome, miss eoraptor. all aboard! [train whistle blows] >> what do you call these? >> lights. >> and this pretty, soft thing on the ground? >> that's the carpet. >> and would you look at the size of that dinosaur? what species are you again? >> brachiosaurus, ma'am. >> oh, i love the view. i still can't believe this train moves by its own self.
8:38 am
>> snack cart. >> oh, you'll love this, erma. just pick any snack you like. >> carrion kabob? meat treat? >> mmm mmm mmm! mercy! what a train! and charming new dinosaurs i've never even heard of before today, like troodon. >> the pleasure is all mine, ma'am. >> and ours. [bell rings] [watch ticks] >> well, you're in for a treat, erma. time tunnel! time tunnel approaching! [bell rings] >> time tunnel? what now? >> we're traveling through time. >> my, oh, my, oh, my. this is stranger than anything i have ever done seen. [bell rings] >> next stop, pteranodon terrace station in the cretaceous time period. [steam hisses] >> well, erma, this is our stop. >> want to come see our nest? >> oh, no, thanks. i just love
8:39 am
this train. i'm going to ride it all the way to the end of the line, to the roundhouse at, uh, what's it called? >> troodon town, ma'am. >> yeah, troodon town. then i'm going to ride it all the way back to the triassic, don't you know, with this charming conductor feller. well, thanks for showing me the wide world, kids! see you soon! yee-ha! [train whistle blows] >> bye, erma! >> hi there. i'm dr. scott, the paleontologist, and this is eoraptor. >> eoraptor. >> eoraptor. >> eoraptor. >> eoraptor lived way back in the triassic time period, and we think it's one of the first dinosaurs in the dinosaur family tree. your ancestors are people that lived in your family a long, long time ago, and dinosaurs had dinosaur
8:40 am
ancestors, too. after eoraptor came many other theropod dinosaurs; you know, the meat-eaters, like allosaurus, velociraptor, and tyrannosaurus, like buddy. and there were also plant-eating dinosaurs, and they all had their own place on the dinosaur family tree. >> brachiosaurus. >> triceratops. >> right, and pteranodons are not part of the dinosaur family tree, but they're close cousins. every time a paleontologist like me finds a new dinosaur, one of the first things we do is try to figure out where it fits in the dinosaur family tree. you know, there's more room on that tree. maybe one of you will grow up to discover a dinosaur that's even older than eoraptor. hey! i see you have a family tree of your own. ok, keep watching for more dinosaur discoveries. >> ♪ every day i go down to the station
8:41 am
and look on down the shining tracks when i hear that old lonesome whistle blowing [toot toot] then i'm so glad that old train is coming back 'cause i love trains ♪ >> whoo whoo! >> ♪ i just love trains well, i can't explain but i won't complain i only know that i love trains ♪ >> hello, folks. it's me, the conductor. today, we're going to visit a volcano. that's a mountain that can blow its top. so come on along with me on the dinosaur train! all aboard! >> [squawks] a volcano? >> we're going to visit a volcano? >> yeah, a volcano. what's a volcano? >> well, it's a mountain that sometimes has smoke and hot,
8:42 am
melted rocks coming out the top. that's called lava. >> our local volcano, old smoky, has been rumbling lately and making even more smoke than usual. that means maybe some lava might come out of it soon. >> whoa! >> and that's why i think team pteranodon should go take a look at old smoky for today's family adventure. >> [whimpers] um, i think the family adventure for the two of us is going to be here at the nest with mom. >> right, and no red-hot volcano. that sounds a little scary to me. >> [squawks] >> oh, we'll be watching the volcano from a good, safe distance, kids. >> oh, we can stay here, you two. that's fine with me. >> i don't think it will be scary. i think seeing a volcano sounds fun. >> me, too! can we go, dad? >> [chuckles] all right, buddy and tiny. to the dinosaur train! >> yay! bye! >> bye!
8:43 am
>> tickets! tickets, please! >> hello, mr. conductor. >> hello, buddy and tiny. you seem very excited today. >> we are! >> can you guess where we're going? >> we'll give you a hint. it's shaped like this. >> and dad says that hot, melted rocks can shoot out of its top. >> hmm. i don't suppose you're going to see a...volcano? >> yes! you're always right. we are going to a volcano. >> i'll bet you know a lot about them. >> i know a thing or two. my guess is you're going to see our local volcano, old smoky, the one we can see from this very train. >> that's the one. right, dad? >> that's right, tiny. i was telling the kids that old smoky's been smoking more than usual lately. >> good observation. >> i've noticed that, too, mr. pteranodon. i think more than smoke is going to come out of old smoky, and very soon. >> what does come out of a volcano?
8:44 am
>> why does anything come out of a volcano? >> excellent questions. you see, deep under the surface of the earth, it's really, really hot. >> so hot that it melts rocks? >> exactly, and the heat pushes those melted rocks, called lava, up, up until they erupt out of the top of the volcano. huzzah! >> erupt? >> yep. erupt means to shoot up and out, like when the lava blasts out of the volcano. it erupts. heh! >> ahem! oh, your dad is, uh, one smart pteranodon. heh heh! you know, i've traveled this train line every day past old smoky, and for years it's just made smoke. but i think it's about to erupt, and today could be the day. >> [gasps] ooh! i hope we get to see it erupt. >> it could happen, tiny. we could get lucky and old smoky might show us more than smoke.
8:45 am
>> we want lava! we want lava... >> well, brush my paws and trim my claws! there's old smoky now. >> whoa! >> next stop, volcano valley! volcano valley station, folks! [brakes creak, steam hisses] there's the path up to the volcano valley viewing point, folks. >> thanks, mr. conductor. >> we'll tell you all about it on the way back! whoa. it's beautiful. >> it's amazing. >> it's pretty special, kids, like nothing i've ever seen before. >> you know who else has never seen anything like this before? >> mom and shiny and don? >> that's exactly what i was thinking. i bet they'd love to see this. >> i agree, kids. this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see old smoky erupt. i bet we still
8:46 am
have time. let's hurry back to the nest and get the rest of team pteranodon. >> hooray! >> don's holding the fruit, thinking about it. finally, he decides to...squish it! >> eww! some of it splattered on me! >> hee hee! did you see that, shiny? boy, did i squish that fruit. it blew up. it went all over the place. [laughter] >> that's kind of like what a volcano does, don. >> really? >> sure. when a volcano erupts, it shoots rocks and lava out its top. >> wow! mom, i changed my mind. can we go find dad and buddy and tiny? >> yeah, and see the volcano? >> [squawks] heh! i hoped you two would want to go after all. let's go catch the dinosaur train. >> [squawks] [giggles] dad and buddy and tiny will be so surprised to see us. [train whistle blows] >> oh, there's the train, kids. come on! >> pteranodon!
8:47 am
>> [humming a tune] [train whistle blows] >> all aboard! >> well, what are we waiting for? let's go find mom and shiny and don! >> right, team! let's go! >> hey, where is everybody? >> [squawks] hello again. forget something? >> huh? >> wait a minute. didn't you have wings a few minutes ago? >> i've never had wings. >> i could have sworn i saw 3 pteranodons, not two pteranodons and a t-rex. >> hey, maybe you saw our mom and brother and sister. >> um, could be. well, they went that-a-way, toward the train station. >> the train station? >> [squawks] >> [squawks]
8:48 am
>> excuse me. mr. stationmaster, have you seen the rest of our family? >> why, i sure have, tiny. heh! i just sold them 3 tickets to volcano valley. i believe they just got on the train when you got off. >> what? >> [squawks] >> ok, we got off the train... >> and mom and shiny and don must have gone into the other coach. >> sheesh! what a mix-up, kids! i, um-- [train whistle blows] no problem. here's the next train. we'll head back to volcano valley and catch up with them. >> yeah! >> looking for someone? >> you know who we're looking for. >> indeedy doo. your mom, shiny, and don just got off at volcano valley and are headed out to the viewing point. i believe they're looking for you. [chuckles] >> [squawks] if we hurry, we can catch them so we can all see the volcano together. all aboard!
8:49 am
>> mmm! all aboard. [all panting] >> oh, here we are, kids. oh! isn't it spectacular? >> but where's buddy, tiny, and dad? >> oh, no! don, mom, you don't think they went back to get us, do you? >> hmm. you know what? that is exactly what i think. come on, kids! [squawks] >> we have to go back down now? [train brakes creaking] [steam hisses] >> come on, kids. >> wow. listen to that rumbling noise. it's louder than ever. >> i hope mom and don and shiny
8:50 am
are still up there. >> i hope we can find dad and buddy and tiny before the volcano erupts. >> oh, no! not again! stop the train! [panting] mr. conductor! >> huh? >> mr. conductor! stop the train! >> oh, nellie! [brakes screeching] pteranodons, all off board. there's the rest of your family. >> yay! [all laugh] >> [squawks] dad! tiny! buddy! >> hey! >> hoo hoo! >> hi, dad! >> ha ha ha! >> oh! >> what a mix-up. we just about missed each other, again. >> yeah, for a second time, or was it the third? >> hey! what are we doing standing around hugging each other? come on! the volcano's about to erupt! >> yeah! let's go as a family. >> ahem! i'd certainly hate to
8:51 am
miss out on the big event. heh! mind if i join you? >> come on, mr. conductor. >> all right, team. to the volcano! [all clamoring] [rumbling] >> buddy, did you feel the earth shake, too? >> yeah. >> we all did, don. >> and look. wow. it's making more smoke than ever. >> there's a rumbling noise. the ground is shaking. the volcano is looking hotter and hotter. old smoky looks like it really wants to erupt. >> look! it's--it's-- >> it's erupting! >> whoa! ooh! ahh! >> [squawks] it's spectacular! >> yeah, the most amazing thing
8:52 am
i've ever seen. >> bless my scales and feathers! what a magnificent sight! >> the best volcano ever. >> let's hear it for the volcano! >> volcano! volcano! volcano! [all cheering] >> 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 pteranodons, one t-rex, and one troodon. just making sure. >> that's right. the whole family is on the dinosaur train, going one way only--home! [all cheering] home sweet home! >> hi there. i'm dr. scott, the paleontologist, and this is a volcano. >> volcano. >> volcanoes happen when melted rocks deep underground burst through the earth's surface, causing an eruption. after that melted rock erupts out of the
8:53 am
earth, we call it lava. >> kaboom! >> now, many volcanoes form cone-shaped mountains like this one, with a huge crater at the top where the lava comes out. once the lava cools off, it looks like this. >> wow! >> volcanoes are found all over the world, even underwater. some islands, like the hawaiian islands, are actually made from lava that erupted from volcanoes at the bottom of the ocean. you can still see lots of old lava today all over hawaii. well, that's all for now. remember, get outside, get into nature, and make your own discoveries. >> volcano! and make your own discoveries. >> volcano!
